FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/28/18): NBA DFS Lineups

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/27/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Three games on Friday night as the playoffs continue. Not a lot of injuries of signicance or quality bench players to choose from, but we can attack those GPP’s with guys who are generously priced and are capable of exceeding their values. Toronto/Washington is the projected highest-scoring game on the slate, with OKC/Utah and Cleveland/Indiana... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/27/18): NBA DFS Lineups

There's a decent three game slate in a few elimination games tonight. That's when the best players on the court generally come out, which is what we'll be looking at. In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 4/27/18. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/27/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Thanks to teams forcing games sixes and pushing these series further along, we get a nice little three-game slate for Friday evening. Playoff basketball (in potentially series' deciding games!), the NFL Draft continues, and a 14-game main slate in MLB is a really nice way to kick off the weekend. My first thought about this...

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/26/18): NBA DFS Lineups

So, this is different. There's only one game tonight after being spoiled with games last night. Only the Bucks and Celtics will play tonight and luckily FanDuel runs this nifty single-game contest that only allows you to roster five total players. To make it easy, I'll do my best to label each pick that is... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/25/18): NBA DFS Lineups

The playoffs are here and we are looking at one of the best times of the year for the NBA. We have a four-game slate where we have two teams trying to close out a series, with the other two series still up for grabs. In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/24/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Three games tonight and plenty of options. Usually this would be good but both the Celtics-Bucks and 76ers-Heat have been somewhat of a crapshoot. The shooters are hitting about every other game, although the superstars have been producing like they should. Game four of Warriors-Spurs shouldn't continue down that same path and expect the Warriors... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/23/18): NBA DFS Lineups

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/20/18): NBA DFS Lineups

We have a solid three game slate, and we are deeper into the series', so we're aware of how these teams plan on playing each other.

Nerlens Noel: The Nerlen Wall

Two summers ago, it was a wild free agency ride for big men in the league. Players like Timofey Mozgov and Luol Deng made out like bandits on notorious contracts (good for them, by the way!).

NBA Injuries and Who Can Benefit Instead (Week 21)
